I'm doing the assault shield challenges for no perks or weapons on hardcore KC and this exercise in frustration has shown me how much of a pos they made the assault shield.
I try to bash people and I magically teleport in front of them. I crouch down and keep them in front (which worked well in mw2) and somehow I still die. I get no protection from explosives whatsoever unlike MW2. To top it all off, I'm damn near blind after 1 encounter because The already horribly gimped shield gets filled with cracks.
Treyarch needs to stop copying people's ideas if they're just gonna make them worse. --- PSN- TJ_UNLIMITED Gamertag- TJ UNLIMIT3D
yeah i agree. FPS games are mainly about using assault shield without any guns. due to this, i have to base my opinion of the game entirely on whether or not i can effectively use the assault shield against attackers with guns. --- not changing my sig until Shenmue 3 is officially announced.
I don't know if they screwed up the shield since I got it gold, but I had no issues with it on Normal mode.
I play objective modes and used tactician with shock and concussion and was pretty simple. --- GT: DingDongPwns "Before you check my KD, know that I am reaching Master without killing anyone, it will all be recorded"
my main complaint with getting the shield gold was that shotgun shots would sometimes go straight through it...from the front, watched kill cams and everything, there was no way all or even most pellets could hit me...

You act as if they didn't do a **** job with the shooting mechanics. Have a seat. --- PSN- TJ_UNLIMITED Gamertag- TJ UNLIMIT3D
I've been sniped through my shield twice. Treyarch intentionally made the shield suck. Placing it on the ground doesn't do much to rushers. --- Pray the day for another Jet Set Radio game, "Boondocks" season 4, and people to learn about good rappers EX: MFDOOM, Elzhi, Gangstarr, Substantial.
